WHAT’S THE STORY?: In June 2010, Jeff Beck, the guitar hero’s guitar hero paid tribute to his own major influence. This continues a busy time for Beck, who last week won a number of grammys for his latest studio album Emotion and Commotion. Here he is joined by the acclaimed Irish singer Imelda May, and her talented rockabilly band, and they play a number of songs which Les Paul made famous, alongside songs and instrumentals of the 50’s and 60’s, so we see Beck paying his own tribute to Hank Marvin, with a version of Apache which manages to be both faithful to the original, as well as being in Beck’s own style, and the same can also be said for the classic ballad ‘Sleepwalk’ which follows it. Noted American Singer Gary ‘US’ Bonds adds his sonic finger-print to ‘New Orleans’ whilst Imelda May and her band do fine recreations of such songs as Cry Me A River and ‘How High the Moon’. The night is finished with a reading of ‘Twenty Flight Rock’ which also features Brian Setzer. Although there are some talented musicians on stage, it never threatens to become a free for all, with each musician having a chance to shine. Les Paul would have approved.

SOUNDS LIKE: Fine musicians having a good time
